Dominic J. Voge
My background is in the field of literacy studies, university reading and learning with text, in particular. I investigate and analyze the unique educational expectations of elite research universities such as Princeton. Recognizing the variety and complexity of learning demands students encounter when studying in different disciplines and courses, much of my work focuses on assisting students as they adjust and adapt to unfamiliar learning situations. When working with students I emphasize the development of individualized strategic approaches to efficient learning which account for each student’s strengths and the specific tasks they face. I also frequently work with students on issues of motivation and engagement and helping students understand and overcome challenges such as procrastination by using motivation theory and various techniques, including but not limited to, time management methods. These ideas and tools can be applied to instruction as well; I am currently co-authoring a book (Cambridge University Press) aimed at helping University Professors promote student engagement in their courses.
